Upcoming: Luminalia, Austin Shakespeare 25th Anniversary Fundraiser at Trattoria Lisinia, Driftwood, Texas, November 15
Austin Shakespeare will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with a Luminalia, a 17th century masque combining pageantry, poetry, dance, music, spectacle and feasting. Originating in the court of Charles I of England, the event celebrates "The Triumph of Light" with entertainments of the era.
The Luminalia will be held at the Mandola Winery in Driftwood, TX on Sunday, November 15, 2009 from 5-9pm, and concludes with dinner and drama at Trattoria Lisina on the winery grounds.
Traditionally, Luminalia guests arrive in costume and masks, and participate as dancers and actors in the evening's production. To encourage attendees in their roles, masks created by local artists will be auctioned on the Austin Shakespeare website (www.austinshakespeare.org/luminalia) leading up to the event. The Stellar Ticket package includes masks and the option of period dance instruction for the masque, as well as preferred dinner seating and transportation to and from the event.
Tickets are $125 each with Stellar ticket packages at $250, and corporate tables seating 4-8 people (or as arranged) are available beginning at $1000-$5000. Additional event information can be found on the website or by calling 512.673.3609. Reservations will be booked through November 9th by calling 512.470.4505.
